Josh Rawlings

Pianist, keyboardist, composer and vocalist Josh Rawlings is a breath of fresh air on the Seattle music scene.

Josh is forging new musical directions as he blends improvisation with traditional jazz and energizing percussive keyboarding that connects and uplifts his listeners. “It’s about the experience and finding that unifying element with the people around you,” Josh explains, “We are re-tying our roots to the healing, connective and celebratory nature of music – this is why we became musicians in the first place.” With a growing portfolio of feature performances, Josh and his groups have played Seattle’s Benaroya Hall, Triple Door, Jazz Alley and the Earshot & Bellevue Jazz Festivals

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
